The Boyertown Community Park played host to a musical event celebrating Funky Frets grand opening. Activities included a workshop, a jam session where musicians could use the skills learned from the workshop. To conclude the event, a concert was held featuring music not usually heard echoing through Boyertown.
The Curt Sheller Trio kicked off playing a very smooth jazz style featuring Curt Sheller on t ukulele. Forget the plunky sounds you made as a kid on the thing grandma brought you from Woolworths. These sounds were as cool as jazz gets and yet very different.
The Aloha Boys played traditional and contemporary Hawaiian style music featuring Ukulele, bass ukulele and guitar. Don Ho? No “Tiny Bubbles”, but a very easy listening, relaxing style of music that had everyone in the audience smiling.
Speaking of smiling, Gordon and Debi Velasco or Lelehuna, as they’re called, had the gathering rolling as they added a bit of vaudeville type banter to the traditional and contemporary Hawaiian sound.
While the weather didn’t provide island temperatures, the warm and friendly atmosphere kept everyone comfortable and asking how soon we will be able to hula in the park again?
